Local environmental quality award winners announced

The winners of the 2017 Local Environmental Quality Awards have been announced, with six organisations being recognised for environmental excellence.

During a ceremony in Stirling on 15 March we hosted Scotland's Local Environmental Quality Network Awards.

Now in their 12th year, the awards celebrate success from across the Local Environmental Quality Network in improving the cleanliness and quality of the environment.

The 2017 awards winners are:

  • Improved Local Environmental Quality - Maryhill Housing Association
  • Support of Communities - Aberdeen City Council
  • Successful Campaign - East Renfrewshire Council
  • Outstanding Team - Nghomes
  • Programme Manager of the Year - Paul Dougall, South Ayrshire Council
  • Programme of the Year - City of Edinburgh Council

Carole Noble, our Operations Director, commented: “The Local Environmental Quality Awards honour the outstanding contributions of organisations and individuals from across Scotland who are working hard to improve the environment and deliver outstanding results in the face of budget constraints and limited resources.

“Littering, dog-fouling and graffiti are issues that really matter to ordinary people and have a disproportionate impact on Scotland’s most vulnerable communities. The initiatives that we recognised today have helped to improve local places for local people, create further community cohesion and build more civic pride Scotland-wide.

“There were strong contenders in each and every category. All of our winners have excelled in delivering significant local improvements, engaging the wider community to deliver environmental enhancements and undertaking innovative action to improve their local area.”
